I am an historian and educator of settler heritage with a Ph.D. in Indigenous history from the University of British Columbia. Based in Snaw-Naw-As territory on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, my primary areas of practice are research and reporting related to Indigenous rights and title; Indigenous Knowledge, land use, and occupancy; and colonial histories and their cumulative effects. I also have a longstanding interest in histories of religion and reconciliation.
As a research consultant, I have worked for First Nations in Canada on a wide range of projects that have been applied in the contexts of specific and comprehensive claims, consultation and negotiations, and community-based education. As an ethnohistorian, I have expertise in oral history and archival research alike. And as an educator, I am committed to knowledge sharing and learning in community and post-secondary contexts. I have taught and contributed to curriculum development in Indigenous history at several universities in British Columbia.
